Cairo Opera House Ceremony

27 Oct 2008 Under the auspices of her Excellency Mrs. Suzan Mubarak, the International School of Information Science (ISIS) and the BA’s Special Projects Department unveiled a complete digital repository of materials documenting Egypt’s rich modern history, available to all in an expansive, multidimensional online archive. The Memory of Modern Egypt project provides an authentic and comprehensive look at culture, politics, and social life in Egypt, from the era of Mohamed Ali in 1805 to the end of Al-Sadat’s presidency in 1981, that no other single library or collection can offer. Various materials are now made available in the repository with an underlying infrastructure that allows for continuous content expansion, and with an interface that facilitates easy navigation and reflects the multidimensionality of the material.
